Harry Connick Jr does Christmas

"Harry Connick Jr! Isn't that enough! Okay, so I'm a big fan of the man, but this show's pretty good on its own, although the music and narration wouldn't be the same without him.
Forty-five minutes is a little shorter than I cared for, but that's what they gave us (an extra few minutes wouldn't have hurt much). We get to follow a Happy Little Elf called Eubie who tries to make some naughty kids turn nice. Not too sappy, and still a possible Christmas classic.
The DVD set's not too shabby. Aside from the film there are quite a few extras including a box that lights up and plays a little tidbit from the theme music.
There are quite a few good laughs in here. This film is very suitable for the older kids, but not for babies; teens and adults with a since of humor will also enjoy this flick. It will even be nice throughout the year!
Taser gun not necessary.

"We watched this with our kids one evening. It was a decent movie, certainly not the high quality of the christmas classics. When Eubie the elf went down to help the small town get off the naughty list, the Santa security team arrives to take him back to the north pole, not with a net, or a bag but with a TASER GUN. They shocked him with it, or so you assume because they show him blacking out after they "Zap" it into the air. It was not the type of thing I had expected to have to explain to my young kids while watching a christmas cartoon about a happy elf. It was in very bad taste."
I must dispute the AWFUL review left for this movie!!

"I purchased this DVD last week even though I had never heard of it before. I hadn't watched it yet, and the other night I was curious to see what people said about it. After reading the "review" from the lady that said it was "Disgusting", I was completely bummed and hesitant to watch the movie. Well, I just got done watching it, and now I am left wondering....LADY, DID WE WATCH THE SAME MOVIE??
First of all, in the beginning when the little girl says "shut up", it was said in the context of "nooo way", which is how kid's say it these days. And it was the ONLY time it was said. There is NO bad language, and NO HISSING CHILDREN.
It was a cute Christmas movie, with a happy conquers sad theme. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to share it with my nieces and nephews.
As for it being scary, the only way your child will "soil their pants" is if your child is scared of candy and puppy dogs!!!"
